Skinny Nutritional Corp. (SKNY)

Skinny Nutritional Corp. (SKNY) has established their Skinny Water® brand as a clear alternative to other products in the enhanced water space, with the only true zero calorie, sugar, carb, sodium, and preservative-containing beverage available. Skinny Water's proprietary formulation of essential antioxidant agents, electrolytes, and the critical vitamins our bodies need in order to achieve optimal function, uses 100% natural flavors, no preservatives, no artificial colors, and only the best purified water.

The company has constructed a network of approximately 50 domestic distributors (with three more internationally), placing product on shelves approximately 15k stores across the United States. Derived from the natural flavors contained in fruits, Skinny Water represents a fortified, extremely low-impact, great-tasting array of beverages that provide a concentrated punch of the nutrients essential for a healthier lifestyle.

The company's strong emphasis on health, fitness, and community has served marketing initiatives very well. The new age beverage segment has seen increasing momentum in recent years, with just about every beverage company getting into the game, but none of them has the kind of no-nonsense product composition behind Skinny Water, something that appeals directly to the majority of the core consumer market.

Skinny Nutritional continues to build value around the Skinny Water brand, and today has numerous trademarks in the healthy beverage and snack food categories. As consumers migrate away from sugar based beverages and empty calories, Skinny Water is ideally positioned to benefit from positive market trends as management focuses on delivering exceptional value to shareholders.
